The most common form of birth control utilized by women is the oral contraceptive (OC). Yet, there is a greater risk of venous thrombosis, which made women that take oral contraceptives frightened. Research seen the potentiality of growing venous thrombosis is high in women taking OC. The problem in which blood clot is shaped within the vein is known as venous thrombosis.Another most commonly birth control used by most women at the present time is the intrauterine device (IUD). However, there are a number of women who have been whining about few side-effects, which is further explained at the Mirena IUD Lawsuit Center.

Long term use of OCs may increase the risk of blood-clotting disorders in women. While the hormone estrogen itself does not cause blood clots to form, for women who have a history of thrombosis, the risk rises significantly. Most oral contraceptives contain an estrogen and synthetic progesterone. But the usual blood transmission may be disrupted due to estrogen and may potentially clog the blood in the veins. There will be no blood and oxygen from reaching the areas of the body due to blood clots.

Healthcare providers may need to explain and discuss the potential benefits and risks associating oral contraceptives to women. Women may need to be aware of the about the potential fleeting risk and what preventive measures they need to take if they need to undergo elective surgery, taking long flight or being disable due to injury or illness. Being cautious to one’s health may be a vital factor in preventing potential health problems and issues.
